...) paradigm to assess hearing in larval wild-type (AB) zebrafish during early development at 5–6 days post-fertilization (d.p.f.). We measured the PPI of the acoustic startle response in zebrafish using a 1-dimensional shaker that simulated the particle motion component of sound along the fish's dorsoventral...

... limited. Here, we describe a method for recording the activity of distinct neural circuits that control fast and slow escape behavior in completely unfettered zebrafish. Fast escape behavior, also called the startle response, has been well characterized in zebrafish ( Eaton et al., 2001 ). Zebrafish...

We conclude that particle acceleration is essential for the directionality of the startle response to infrasound, and that the response is triggered by the synergistic effects of acceleration and compression. * Author for correspondence (e-mail: h.e.karlsen@bio.uio.no...

...H. Neumeister; B. Ripley; T. Preuss; W. F. Gilly ABSTRACT In Loligo opalescens , a sudden visual stimulus (flash) elicits a stereotyped, short-latency escape response that is controlled primarily by the giant axon system at 15 °C. We used this startle response as an assay to examine the effects...
